Tonkadale Greenhouse supports ICA: Your local foodshelfAfter a disappointing vegetable growing season in 2013 and a longer than long winter, aren’t we all ready to dig into the vegetable garden?

Whether you’re an experienced veteran or just a beginner, we can all unite behind the goal of fresh, homegrown produce. Tonkadale’s veggie list is growing every year. Check out what we have planned for the produce section this season.

Tonkadale also participates in the Grow and  Give Program. If you have a small family or really like to grow things, you can contribute your extra produce to the ICA Food Shelf.
